How to Migrate to the Cloud

An interesting discussion about integration broke out last week on the Salesforce Professional LinkedIn Network. This question was asked (by a vendor who wanted to promote his solution it turns out):

“How do most new implementations migrate data to salesforce from legacy systems? Especially when there is a need to maintain an integration between existing systems? I’ve noticed on numerous job boards postings for dbas to manually create a staging database and perform ETL to through this database.”

So far there have been 24 comments…mostly by vendors about themselves; a couple by consultants promoting these vendors; and few by customers who have actually provided some real-world experiences. Nevertheless, the post is definitely worth reading if you’re interested in the topic of Salesforce integration. My advice, of course, is to focus on the quality and quantity of AppExchange reviews. I’ve also written a couple of posts on selecting the right integration as a service solution in the past:

But to actually answer the question directly, I thought I’d post a couple of Salesforce migration videos from my good friend Bryan Plaster to help you get started.

Good luck! I hope this is helpful.
